We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.

The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies :: Jennifer Gonzalez

The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies :: Jennifer Gonzalez | Education Resources | Scoop.it
So here they are: 15 formats for structuring a class discussion to make it more engaging, more organized, more equitable, and more academically challenging. If you’ve struggled to find effective ways to develop students’ speaking and listening skills, this is your lucky day.

I’ve separated the strategies into three groups. The first batch contains the higher-prep strategies, formats that require teachers to do some planning or gathering of materials ahead of time. Next come the low-prep strategies, which can be used on the fly when you have a few extra minutes or just want your students to get more active. Note that these are not strict categories; it’s certainly possible to simplify or add more meat to any of these structures and still make them work. The last group is the ongoing strategies. These are smaller techniques that can be integrated with other instructional strategies and don’t really stand alone. For each strategy, you’ll find a list of other names it sometimes goes by, a description of its basic structure, and an explanation of variations that exist, if any. To watch each strategy in action, click on its name and a new window will open with a video that demonstrates it.

ClassHook | Educational Clips from Popular Media | Education Resources | Scoop.it

TV shows and movies often contain scenes that discuss topics such as Science, Math, Art, Music, and more. While funny and amusing, these scenes also have valid educational merit.

These scenes not only teach students but also make learning more relevant. Students can associate a concept in class to an image they see in their everyday lives. As a result, this increases content retention and makes learning more fun.
